Green-Dreaming? I was reading a newsletter from one of our city commissioners here in Asheville today.
She seems to be "dreaming green" and her fans say she is a "light in the community" ... From what I know, she challenges Asheville's citizens to apply some creative "human energy" to look at the city's trajectory. She suggests that we work together to build positive futures. Depending on a variety of lifestyles and choices, solutions to how a city thrives may differ.

So, from the perspective of real estate professionals and our clients, tonight I am wondering (like the fellow in the photo here who's imagining how the future conservation neighborhood he's exploring will unfold) how this would take shape not just here in Asheville, but in your town.
Here are a couple ideas:
- Put into play a plan for sustainable neighborhoods with renewable energy resources powering them.
- Imagine how to modify homes so that water, wind and solar power are not only energy efficient but save money...
- Spur a renaissance of urban neighborhoods with community gardens. (Organic, of course)
- Create eco-friendly neighborhoods where new green-built homes are designed with natural, non-toxic materials to be safe, healthy, energy efficient.
I am intrigued with the notion of being a part of designing a "net zero energy homes community" that creates more renewable energy than we use. Are you?
